Ellips ends partnership with GP Graders
Ellips international supplier of grading and sorting technology for the fresh produce industry, announced today that it will no longer provide its solutions to GP Graders.
“GP Graders has long relied on Ellips to supply the technology utilized on their grading and sorting platforms for cherries, apples and other commodities and we wish them the best going forward. However, they are no longer an authorized supplier of Ellips technology,” says Erwin Bakker, President and Founder of Ellips.
According to Bakker, “GP Graders customers who utilize Ellips True Sort grading solutions will be able to receive software updates, system upgrades and technical support directly from Ellips or their authorized representatives. This change will not affect the quality of service and support delivered to the GP customer base. In fact, it will create a more direct relationship with Ellips which will help ensure optimal system performance while providing direct access to all future technology enhancements.”
Ellips True Sort parts, software upgrades and system enhancements will only be available through Ellips or their authorized representatives. For service and support of GP Graders grading platform, excluding the grading and sorting technology, customers should continue to deal directly with GP.
If existing customers are in need of new grading and sorting technology for cherries, blueberries or cherry tomatoes, Ellips has tailor-made solutions offered by Elifab, an Ellips company. Elifab (https://elifab.com/en/home/ ) has developed a new line of grading solutions that incorporates Ellips True Sort technology with “state of the art” equipment. It is designed to deliver superior grading performance, product handling, capacity and reliability. This family of grading solutions was also designed to reduce machine footprint and energy consumption while addressing stringent food safety requirements. The market response to the Elifab product line has been tremendous with some of the world’s largest blueberry packers selecting the Berry Class system after extensive evaluation versus competitor’s solutions.
